This NW style sour blond ale is a young Pinot Gris single barrel project from cellarman Kevin Martin. At first, you’ll notice aromas of pear, apple cider and honeydew. Sweet golden candy and cider notes on the palate follow, leading to a slightly sweet finish that lingers.

[2/25/15] Draught at Cascade Brewing Barrel House in Portland. Nice cloudy yellow. Aroma of lacto, grapes, a bit soapy, and some wine. Sourish flavor with grapes, wine and wood. Medium-bodied.

Odd beast. On tap at the Barrel House. Pours a yellow color with a small white head. A big fruity vinous nose. Excellent flavor with huge soft grape notes, woody, sour lacto, but very smooth. The overall flavor is tart sweet grapes, oak. Excellent.

popery (1975) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAY 21, 2014
Pours an orange gold, not too bright, small white fizzy head, poor retention. Lots of sweet fruity wine barrel in the aroma, white grape juice, moderate funk, mild lactic note. Mild pucker, sweet and sour, the oak dries things out a bit, wood and lactic sour in the finish. Light feel, a bit fizzy.

Theydon_Bois (16660) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 23, 2012
From the barrel at Cascade, Portland - 07/11/12. Hazed mid golden with a very thin white head that soon clears to the edges. Nose comprises burnt piss, herbal tones, tarte lemon notes. Taste follows nose, a little wood, bitter citrus, burnt orange and pineapple. Fullish in body with soft carbonation lending towards a tarte mouth puckering finish. Decent.

On tap at Cascade Brewing, pours a cloudy golden with a small white head. Aroma of red wine barrels, pears and sour fruits. Flavour is sweet and sour, with some sweetened red wine notes, apple cider and lightly soured pears. Tastes like a lightly soured cider. Very good stuff.
